Beaconsfield named as UK town with most million pound plus properties

Research also reveals that one in 29 properties on the market in the UK are for sale for over a million pound.

Beaconsfield has the highest proportion at 47% followed by 44% in Virginia Water in Surrey, 38% in Much Hadham and 37% in Radlett, both in Hertfordshire.

In fifth place is Cobham in Surrey with 33%, then Hartfield in East Sussex at 32%, Chalfont St Giles in Buckinghamshire at 32%, Ascot in Berkshire also at 32%, Chislehurst in Kent at 31% and Gerrards Cross in Buckinghamshire at 29%.

The research from Prime Location show that these top ten  price locations dwarf the 13% of similarly valued homes on the London market.
On a regional level, Surrey contains the most millionaire property towns, with ten of the 41 hotpots based there. Hertfordshire is represented six times, while Buckinghamshire is represented five times.
Overall, some 3.5% of properties on the UK market are valued at more than £1 million, the research also shows, and some 41 towns across Britain have a higher percentage of their homes for sale over £1 million than London.

‘Despite the recession the Capital’s commuter towns continue to be hotspots for million pound homes and the surprise is just how high the proportions are within many of them,’ said Nigel Lewis, property analyst at PrimeLocation.

‘The common thread that links all of the towns on this list is that they manage to combine the best of both worlds, offering a spacious, quiet environment while still being an easy commute to a major city,’ he explained.
